Create a non-GUI based Java application that calculates weekly pay for an employee. The application should display text that requests the user input the name of the employee, the hourly rate, and the number of hours worked for that week. The application should then print out the name of the employee and the weekly pay amount. In the printout, display the dollar symbol ($) to the left of the weekly pay amount and format the weekly pay amount to display currency.

This is what I have the compiler comes up with 3 errors line 15 states illegal start of type, line 84 states identifier expected and line 88 states class interface expected how do i fix these errors?

Class definition should contain only variable and method declarations(and or definitions).

Your while loops should be with in some function.
